In 1978, Dr. Mary Dore envisioned an environment in-which students could gain self-confidence in their ability to learn and to succeed in life after graduation. Her vision is still vibrant and thriving over 40 years later!
We strive to transform the lives of our students who have learning differences by providing a holistic, individualized education in a diverse and nurturing community where each student belongs.
Along with our core curriculum we offer other enriching activities including Camp Comets, tutoring, extended day activities and testing, speech and occupational services. We also offer a phenomenal athletics program!
In addition to a foundation of traditional and researched-based academics, Crosland offers a unique program including the arts, technology, athletics and social development. We develop independent self-advocates who succeed in work, study, and life in our ever-changing world.
